You guys ROCK! :) My first day on a raw food diet & thinspo :)










June 22 Weigh-in:

Weight: 121.8
BMI: 18.5

Thanks so much for all your comments on raw foodism! It's true that raw foodism can be a pretty vague concept, so for the sake of clarity I'll define what I see raw foodism as :) Basically, I see raw foodism as a diet based around vegetables, fruits, and nuts & seeds. None of that eating raw beef stuff for me... ew, ew, ew! Just my opinion - I've been pescatarian for over 4 years, so the thought of eating raw meat (other than sushi) is revolting to me! Anyway... day 1 eating raw (by my definition):

The night before my raw food day I decided that my diet would consist of vegetables, fruits, and nuts & seeds. I also decided that I would take a multivitamin and consume water and herbal tea when not eating. I felt wonderful all day, even without caffeine (something I had been depending greatly upon). I also noticed a lot of toxins being flushed out of my body throughout the day. This morning, I didn't weigh any less than the day before - probably because I allowed myself to eat all of the vegetables, fruits, and vegetable protein I desired - but I also noticed my belly looks flatter, probably because of all the toxins I've flushed out. So maybe a raw food diet could take longer for one to lose weight, but once all these toxins are flushed out of my body, I'm bound to lose a pound or two!

I went to lunch with my boyfriend, so I'm eating vegetarian today :) However, I am going to make raw foodism my goal. It's amazing.

Stay strong!

  3. So you can't cook anything? Not even boil some veggies in water? Or cook some beans?
